Talking New Kid - from Chicago IL

Hey guys,

About a month ago in March I purchased my first merc, a beautiful 300a with 93k miles-
started saving cash a few years back, had always been eyeing these cars for as long as I remember. When I found a near perfect example near Racine, couldn't buy it fast enough!
The day I picked up the car felt like Christmas, felt like a madman - couldn't help myself laughing on the drive back to Illinois..

Feels great to be here, cant wait to be part of the Marauder community,
Thanks!

Congrats!

I smiled reading your post remembering my drive(s) home in new Marauders.

Did you get compliments at the gas stations along the way?

Please post pictures and give more data on car, and purchase, and trip home.

And Welcome, welcome, welcome to the modness!

And are you really 17? Maybe a new record!

As far as compliments go the car keeps a pretty low profile..mostly German cars around here, although I have gotten a thumbs up from a Taurus and a C4
I'll try to have pictures up, haven't been too happy with the cars stance..
(little high in the front)
and yes, really 17, would be cool to get a check on that record

Thanks for the Welcome!

Welcome, check the Chitown Marauders section as we’ve got a meet coming up. Shortly after that the regional Louisville meet is always a must.
